Here is a copy of my list of foods that I always keep on hand. I obviously add additional items depending on what recipes I'm having throughout the week, but these are my staple foods. If you want me to send this file to you by email let me know, that way you can edit it as you please!
I've been asked a few questions about this list.
1. Where do you typically grocery shop? I usually shop at Walmart, Costco, and a local market we have in my city. I pretty much get canned stuff and all my household things at Walmart. Costco has an awesome selection of organic fruits, vegetables, crackers, meat, etc. I love the Aidells chicken sausages! The market we have here has a really great section of the store that is pretty much like a health food store so I'll get chia seeds, flax seed, protein bars, coconut oil, etc from there. If we had a Smiths closer I'd shop there though.
2. Where do I buy lunch meat? I get Hormel Natural Choice lunch meat which is %100 preservative free. Costco also has some preservative free lunch meat, but I can't remember the brand. Preservative free goes bad faster since the preservatives don't lengthen the shelf life so take that into account.
3. What kind of bacon/sausage do you buy? First off, I always eat normal pork sausage and bacon. I have tried soooo many times to eat turkey bacon, turkey burger, and turkey sausage but I can't handle it. I hate the taste! Again, I just look for the healthiest kind out there. I don't eat a ton of bacon or sausage so I get what my husband likes since he eats more of it.
4. What's my favorite brand of whole wheat wraps? Spinach wraps? My favorite whole wheat wraps are Trader Joes or Wrap-Itz. If you don't have access to a Trader Joes there are other options just make sure the first ingredient is whole wheat and stay away from refined wheat in there! You can order Wrap-Itz from Amazon! Spinach wraps are deceptive. I just read that they aren't really that healthy because they use refined sugars and food dye to get the green coloring. There is hardly any nutrients in there. So those will be coming off the list asap :(
